Some call it a slant back some slope back but I just like it.. Still loyal to Mopar and Plymouth in particular. And just adore the color.

Looks ok to me and the price isn't too bad. If they're telling the truth and the motor was rebuilt correctly, you might be ok with it. Those drove nicely on the highway if the front end was in good shape and adjusted right. At least as long as you kept them at about 60~65 mph. Leaked oil like there was no tomorrow, but so did many other cars then. At least you won't have to worry about a Rochester carburetor with it.

we had a 1950 DeSoto, had the fluid drive in it (that I originally thought was 3 on the tree). It rode real nice cruising 70-75. Mine was not in that nice of condition though!

Hi Ron, I sent you a link to a 52 Plymouth here in Ca. Just for comparison.

Thanks, Marty I got it and I wondered who it was from. The car is beautiful and appeals to me but my first love is the 30s style. Why I look at other years is the potential for a daily driver which in my case and age could be only once or twice a week and maybe 20 miles. Hemmings is always sending me pictures of new offerings in their magazines or auction.
